Materials that go into making Boots
A great number of materials go into making boots ranging from rubber to leather to canvas. The raw material used on the boots depends on where it is to be worn. If the boot is meant to be a party wear, leather should be the choice. Similarly, rubber boots are working footgear and canvas boots are regular wears.
Function of Boots
Boots primarily meant to be walked through elements, maintain a close stitch so as to stop water, dirt, snow and mud from entering into them, thus providing protection to the foot and leg. Certain boots also function as insulators. They act as cushions to the feet keeping them comfortable during strenuous activities. They are the safest means of ankle protection. In some cases, they solely play the role of just a fashionable foot gear.
